Eight remaining players work together to try and stay safe for another week.
Week 10 on the ranch comes with a big surprise, when the original red, white and blue teams are disbanded, and contestants have to form all new teams decided by chance. Moving on to another trainer proves to be a difficult adjustment, especially for one player who struggles to accept the change. Then it’s time for a cooking challenge with celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito, who judges which team makes the healthiest and tastiest dish and awards the winning team a valuable one pound advantage on the scale. Later, one trainer bids a tearful goodbye to their player who falls below the red line, while the eliminated contestants at Comeback Canyon face off on the scale to see who will spend another week with trainer Bob Harper.
Super Bowl champs Michael Irvin, Donald Driver and Willie McGinest – will be joining them this week. First, they’ll be part of a football challenge in which a trainer and contestant from each team must catch footballs from the NFL legends – while tied together. And the stakes are high, because the winning team gets the coveted prize of video chats with loved ones.
It’s eight weeks in to the competition; and the remaining contestants have already lost almost 700 lbs. But this week it might prove harder to stay on course when a challenge involving giant treadmills over water gives the winning team the opportunity to assign penalties to the two losing teams. One team is tasked with cleaning duties that must be finished before they can access their trainer and the gym; while the other team is sent without their trainer to a city full of temptations – Las Vegas. Meanwhile; at Comeback Canyon; trainer Bob Harper tries to convince his two contestants to make their health a priority rather than always taking care of others first. Then the player who falls below the red line at the ranch weigh-in and feels unprepared to return home is thrilled to get a second chance at Comeback Canyon; while the weigh-in there sends another contestant home for good.
A challenge at the beginning of the week causes quite a splash as the red, white and blue teams have to hold a certain percentage of their body weight to keep their trainers from falling into a pool. The team that drops their trainer first loses them for the week, while the team that drops their trainer second will only have their trainer at the last chance workout. While the two teams without their trainers try to rise to the challenge at the ranch, Bob Harper tries to get his two eliminated contestants to work together as a team at Comeback Canyon. And one contestant takes a trip away from the ranch and gives her trainer a glimpse of her “glory days.” Then a weigh-in full of surprises – including one player reaching “One-derland” – ends with one contestant falling below the dreaded red line, but thrilled to get a second chance at Comeback Canyon.
The contestants return to the Los Angeles Coliseum this week, where their journey began, to face their first temptation – a tailgating challenge. Each player enters a tent filled with stadium food favorites, and has to decide whether to consume the high-calorie food and possibly win the coveted prize of immunity, or walk away from the temptation eating nothing. Later, one player opens up to his trainer about issues from childhood that have continue to take an emotional toll, while one of Bob’s ‘Comeback Canyon’ contestants gives him a very special gift. Then a red line at the weigh-in sends one contestant from the ranch to a surprise second chance at Comeback Canyon, while one of Bob’s two eliminated contestants there heads home for good.
All athletes dread the thought of being benched or sidelined from a game, and this week’s challenge gives the winning team the power to sideline one player from an opposing team so their weight won’t count at the weigh in. And the challenge comes with high anxiety as the players are suspended in the air racing to cross a canyon and put together a puzzle when they’re done. Everyone has to step it up this week to avoid the dreaded red line elimination, because they won’t know which player is chosen to sit out until they get to the scale. After the weigh-in, the eliminated player is thrilled to learn they have a second chance at Comeback Canyon, while the eliminated contestant at Comeback Canyon heads home for good.
This week kicks off with a “Lottery Challenge,” where one contestant is randomly chosen to go home with their trainer for the week. But the pressure is on when they find out their weight will be the only weight that counts for their team this week on the scale. While the chosen contestant deals with the emotional issues at home that caused them to gain weight, the remaining team members try to stay on track at the ranch without their trainer. Later, the two eliminated contestants at “Comeback Canyon” compete to stay there one more week, while the ranch weigh-in finds one player making the ultimate sacrifice for their team.
The contestants compete in two challenges this week to gain pound advantages at the weigh-in. The first challenge tests their nutrition knowledge, with their trainers consuming food for each incorrect answer. The “Wall of Glory” is revealed in the gym, showing contestants when they were top athletes, inspiring them to work ever harder in the gym. Then trainers Dolvett Quince, Jessie Pavelka and Jennifer Widerstrom help out at an endurance challenge before a weigh-in determines who will be headed to the surprise “Comeback Canyon” location with trainer Bob Harper and which of Bob’s two eliminated contestants will be headed home.
Week two begins with the trainers and contestants getting to know each other and reveal more about themselves, with the exception of one player who refuses to talk about what led to her weight gain. This week’s challenge has contestants busting through "walls of excuses" and racing through an obstacle course while carrying a punching bag, with the winning team getting a prize that none of the players want to be without. Then Dr. Huizenga meets one-on-one with contestants to reveal the results of their medical exams and what the future holds if they don’t lose weight, leading one contestant to storm out of the room when the truth is too hard to hear. Later, the weigh-in at the ranch reveals which contestant will be headed to trainer Bob’s Harper’s "Comeback Canyon," while the weigh-in at "Comeback Canyon" ends with one contestant leaving the competition for good.
Twenty former athletes, including NFL players and Olympic gold medalists, try to change their lives and get healthy on the new season that also features new trainers Jessie Pavelka and Jennifer Widerstrom joining veteran trainers Dolvett Quince and Bob Harper. The contestants are led by former NFL players Scott Mitchell (12 seasons in the NFL) and Damien Woody (two-time Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots), as well as Olympic gold medalist and former professional tennis star Zina Garrison. Other contestants striving for weight loss include former WNBA standout Vanessa Hayden, three-time Olympic gold medal softball player Lori Harrigan-Mack, and a mix of former college and high school sports standouts. Season 16 also features trainer Bob Harper in an exciting new role, giving contestants a second chance at life on the show. Just when the eliminated contestant each week thinks they are headed home, they will actually be whisked away to a secret location called “Comeback Canyon.” There they will be trained by Harper, competing at a separate secret weekly weigh-in for the chance to return to the competition and a shot at “The Biggest Loser” title and $250,000 grand prize.

In this must-see, exciting live finale, the 15 contestants from this season return for a special reunion and a chance to weigh in one last time - and show America how much weight they've all lost since beginning their weight-loss journeys. Those who have been eliminated will compete for the $100,000 "at home" prize. Then it's the moment viewers have been waiting for, when one of the three finalists will be named this season's "Biggest Loser" and win the coveted grand prize of $250,000.
The stakes are higher than ever when the five final players compete in a "Biggest Loser" first - a sprint triathlon, requiring them to swim 1/2 a mile, bike 12 miles and run three miles. The triathlon winner will secure a coveted spot as a finalist, as well as a brand new Ford Fusion. Then it's an emotional trip down memory lane as the contestants watch footage of their journeys with their trainers, and see firsthand how far they've come since arriving on the ranch. Later, it's time for the last weigh-in before the finale, where two players will fall below the red line and go home, and two more will become finalists, joining the triathlon winner to compete for $250,000 and the title of "The Biggest Loser" at the season 15 finale.
It's one of the most eagerly-anticipated episodes of "The Biggest Loser" season - the makeover episode! The fun begins with fashion expert Tim Gunn, who works his magic helping the contestants select stylish new outfits to flatter their new slimmer selves. Then celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves, whose clients have included Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Beckham, Lady Ga Ga and Eva Longoria, crafts incredible new looks for each of the remaining seven contestants, leading to amazing and dramatic transformations. Then they are whisked away to enjoy a special night out and heartwarming, emotional reunions with loved ones flown in to celebrate their big day. Later, it's back to reality and the ranch, where two players fall under the red line at the weigh-in and are eliminated, revealing the final five contestants of the season.
The contestants are off on the adventure of a lifetime, headed to Utah Olympic Park in Park City, Utah, where they'll train like champions and get to meet some incredible Olympic athletes. Dolvett introduces the players to Olympic gold medalist Apolo Ohno, who talks about his own "Second Chance" - this season's theme - and works out with the contestants inside the spectacular Olympic Oval arena. Then the contestants get to compete in the sport of curling, after an introduction to USA Curling team members Jessica Schultz, Debbie McCormick and Anne Swisshelm. The fun continues at the base of the bobsled track, where words of motivation from USA Bobsled Team members Lolo Jones and Jazmine Fenlator get the remaining seven players fired up about the fast-paced sport. But for this week's challenge, they won't be racing down the track. Instead, they will be running more than a mile up the bobsled track, a challenge made far more difficult by the elevation of over 7,000 feet. Also this week, Bob designs an Olympic-inspired workout that puts all the players to the test, and Jillian tries to help a contestant still struggling to embrace her self-worth. Travelling and being away from the ranch environment leaves many contestants worried about their weight loss this week. Those fears intensify at the weigh-in, where surprising results push two players below the yellow line and the other contestants must decide which player is going home.
